      Question Where to get a sheet of sieve mesh?

      Is there a specific place to buy a sheet of sieve material or are they roughly the same?

      You're talking about the curve screen?
      If so, those are called wedge wire screens, they're triangular shaped stainless rods welded together with varying spacing as needed.

      Hey there! So, basically when it comes to sieving materials (you know, like when you're separating big chunks from little bits), there are different kinds of materials and mesh sizes that can be used. And not all of them are created equal, you know what I mean? Some materials and mesh sizes might work better for certain tasks or applications than others. So, it's really important to think about what you specifically need the sieve for and to do a bit of research to figure out which option would be the best fit for you before you go ahead and buy one.

      I think that it would be fair to assume that this is for filtering fish pond water...

      The OP asked where to buy it, not so much what to buy. I got mine here, https://www.twpinc.com/, as they have a good selection, pricing, and delivery. They don't sell wedge wire, if in fact that's what your setup uses, and that costs a lot more.

      Secuono, Not sure where you are in VA, but I am in Gloucester.

      I recently bought a roll of 300 micron stainless steel wire mesh for a DIY sieve for the temporary koi home I set up in the garage while I'm doing a rebuild. I will never use it all. I'd be happy to share. Feel free to comment or PM me.
